  • First Four For Charity (Due: Tue 3:30 PM PDT)

    I was thinking of doing a short contest for the First Four which starts 3:30 pm PDT tomorrow.  Got a note from a friend that the best way to support the people of Japan is to send money to the American Red Cross (link:  If you could indulge me, please send your picks for the four First Four games and margin of victory for each (e.g., UNC-Asheville by 10 pts).  Your entry is free and for every valid entry I get, I’ll donate $1 per entry (if under 25 entries, $2 per entry) on behalf of HWCI NCAA Pool (I’ll use this as my middle name and hopefully my credit card will still go through).  Even if you don’t care about bball, just send in your picks anyway.  Best of all… no nicknames to come up with!  I probably won’t have time to figure out the winner til the weekend but it will help if you reply directly to this email or put in the subject line “First Four picks”.  Deadline is 3:30 pm PDT Tuesday (tomorrow)! I’ll post my pick on the website ( later tonight.

    NAME (First, Last):
    WINNER & MARGIN OF VICTORY: UNC-Asheville vs Arkansas-Little Rock (UALR)
    WINNER & MARGIN OF VICTORY: Texas-San Antonio (UTSA) vs Alabama St
    WINNER & MARGIN OF VICTORY: USC vs Virginia Commonwealth (VCU)

    Thanks!  The winner gets bragging rights as the first HWCI NCAA First Four Champion.  Winner is the most correct picks with the tiebreaker the lowest margin of victory difference (above or below).
